ARE TWO SPECIES OF CLOUDED LEOPARDS BETTER THAN ONE?

December 2006

Two articles from Current Biology, one using DNA sequencing, the other using close morphological analysis of fur samples, come to the same conclusion: where we previously thought there was only one species of the endangered clouded leopard from South East Asia, we now know there are two. This could have implications for conservation.
